In July, FBI agents raided the home of Paul manafort, Trump's former campaign manager.
It has been clear for months that Mueller would interview Trump's closest advisers, but he now says he would like to talk with other administration officials, including members of the communications team.
Mr. Priebus can potentially answer many questions Mr. Mueller has about what occurred during the campaign and in the White House. You say, "Oh, I'm going to dismiss him".
According to a law enforcement official briefed on the investigation, Mr. Comey met with Mr. Priebus at the White House on February 8 - a week before Mr. Comey said Mr. Trump cornered him in the Oval Office and asked him to end an investigation into Mr. Trump's former national security adviser, Michael T. Flynn. "No, I'm not dismissing anybody", he told the media on Thursday.
Even as special counsel Robert Mueller plays patty-cake with Comey, hires one Hillary crony after another for his team and expands his investigation into whether or not Donald Trump legally bought a pack of Skittles at a 7-Eleven when he was 12, one (so-far) lone congressman thinks maybe there should be some congressional oversight. He has also frequently said he hoped the investigation would be completed quickly.
The American people will begin to demand impeachment if Trump fires Mueller and starts pardoning Russian Federation conspirators.
"The president began by saying Flynn hadn't done anything wrong in speaking with the Russians, but he had to let him go because he had misled the vice president", Mr. Comey said.
He has asked the White House to provide him with some information about any specific meetings with Russian officials, people who attended them and whether there are any notes, transcripts or documents available about them, two of the people said.
Trump has denied asking Comey to drop the investigation of Flynn. The search warrant involved was related to banking and tax documents and was conducted the same day Manafort was scheduled to testify to the Senate intelligence committee.
John Dowd, Trump's attorney, underscored Trump's support for Mueller in a comment August 8. "They [the FBI] do that very seldom, so I was surprised to see it". A spokesperson told ABC News, "Mr. Manafort is in the process of retaining his former counsel, Miller & Chevalier, to represent him in the office of special counsel investigation. These methods are normally found and employed in Russian Federation not America".
